Well Steve, you did it "creepy" once again...therefore this is a "Like-1" for me

Steven Stoddart on June 5, 2011

Ooh... I have to confess that when I was thinking about this shot, I thought of you : -)

Thanks for the like number 1!

Hiya Marion - I had to laugh.. I had this as my desktop when the axeman came round.. arf arf. (I'll know in a couple of weeks if I am out...)

Regardless, thanks for the like!

Good one Steve, A bit on the spooky side though. Sorry you may be getting a change in your life, it may be for the better as you said. One door closes, another always opens. LIKE for this pic, Cheers, LOZ

Hiya Loz! Chuffed you liked this and I am GUILTY portraying what was a sunny scene as something more forbidding! Sometimes I like to add a wee bit of drama.. I only hope it does not give you heebie-jeebies in the small hours :-(

As for the job well, as the Pope said to St. Peter, "S * * t" happens"... I am luckier than many because the company I work for are more generous than most when this kind of thing happens...

Thanks for the like :-)

Super sharp and Super spooky SuperSteve!

I love all of the textures, just by looking, I can feel them!


Happy & non-spooky wishes, GG:)

P.S. Good luck with the job, it's a tough thing to go through, not knowing.

Hiya GG! Super spooky, eh? Well, Casper would feel at home here then! There are many, many reasons why I love photography.. The opportunity these places give to let the imagination come to the fore is just one of them.

This corner of the St. Mary's churchyard is quiet and usually forgotten but recently, much of the grass and weeds had been cleared back. The evening sun was low enough to create strong shadows and after a wee bit of tweaking, this was the result..

With both you and Loz calibrating this as 'spooky', perhaps I can safely say "mission accomplished" :-)

As for job thing, thank you, GG... To be honest, it does not exercise me as much as I thought it and the stuff I am doing at the moment is seriously interesting.. If it all comes to an end, well, I am grateful for all the stuff I have been able to learn...

Thanks for stopping by and for the Like :-)

Steve, if you continue lingering on dark and old cemeteries, one day, an emaciated arm will rise from a tomb and catch you!

A dramatic atmosphere! Like

Greetings François

Steven Stoddart on June 21, 2011

Hello François! I appreciate your concern but I have never found Casper to be anything but friendly! But you do have a point... If I do more of these shots, I'll take my rosary, and gun with a silver bullet and a huge bunch of garlic with me... that will make any monster think twice!

Thanks for stopping by... and I am grateful for the like...
